It depends what your definition of GOAT is. Honestly, i'm not too into NFL history like I am with the NBA so I can only speak from guys i've seen.  PERSONALLY, I rather have Rodgers and Manning.

Wow, you "Seattle sychophants" are angry people. I cannot stand Boston sports fans for the most part, but how about giving them the respect of calling them fans instead of "sychophants"? Lik

Logic always goes out the window when discussing Brady because if you don't like him you've already made up your mind on this years ago and nothing will change your opinion.. he could win two more Sup

How does everyone feel about starting Brady this week? Weather isn’t an issue and volume will be there as well. 

 

I was nervous about the Baltimore d but I mean you can’t bench Brady with how many turnovers his defense gets. I expect Lamar Jackson to make mistakes and maybe Brady gets a couple free red zone opportunities to still have a good game

Are we genuinely concerned here? Through the last few weeks or so he has just been meh. Does he slow down even more as the season goes on and weather changes?

No. The game scripts are about to change into Brady's favor. No more cakewalks for this fraud of a defense. Brady going to be slinging

That deep ball INT last night was comical.  Brady's arm strength is like a 2 on a 1 to 10 scale at this point.  

But, at Brady's age, I'm more worried that the big problem on the deep throws isn't as much as he can't throw it that far as that he can't see that far anymore...  🤣

So, maybe Flash wasn't the problem? That's all I heard when he got cut. Nothing about Brady, just how Flash was late to meetings and wasn't really producing. But it is probably Tom Brady who can't hit the ocean on a deep ball.

I agree, and I'm no fanboy of Brady but in his defense it was on a long 3rd down and could have just been an pseudo arm-punt that just backfired when Thomas returned it 30 yards.  Also, he's been a terrible deep ball thrower for nearly a decade now.

Brady's problem in my opinion, is what it always is, if you can get pressure up the middle (particularly with your front 4) and force him to move laterally he's not good.  He very rarely makes a play off schedule.  He's played in some variant of the same offense for 20 years, when he's on schedule with his short to intermediate reads getting the ball out before 3 seconds, he could be 80 years old throwing it and still find success.  But any variable into that equation and he is a mere mortal that makes his age look more of a factor.  Not many teams in the league can get the kind of pressure, or spook him enough, to make him look as bad as he did, but when they do he looks really bad.  San Fran would eat their lunch.

This is the best description I've seen on Brady/New England here. It happens every year where there is at least one or two games where Brady is completely frustrated and heaves desperation passes and the lynch mob gets their ropes and declares his career over.

Brady has not gotten his success off of his athleticism nor his arm strength, but rather his brain (captain obvious, I know) so when you force Brady to make athletic plays and get him moving it's usually bad news for the Patriots. For fantasy purposes he is a guy who you always need to check the schedule and not be afraid to stream someone else when he plays a good pass rush, especially on the road.
